If paying taxes makes you sick try moving to North Carolina in Durham where you can see first hand. d where tax dollars are spent. Single African American women who have 4 kids living on ebt cards, welfare for each kid.. The social service system, social security offices are all run by African Americans as well so its an in for alot of them seeking benefits. I tried to get benefits from getting sick after working 28 years and got the cold shoulder. These women and men suck the system dry, skills that consist of saying "Talk to the hand" and a desir e to do nothing but bear children and collect benefits. If your around it long enough it will wear you down ...I was here in the 80s in the Marines and am disgusted by this place after mving back here 25 years later, itis indeed a sad place...work and jobs are given to people who know people. In this town its not what you know its who you know...easily become homeless here if your not street smart.

Yes, we are very slowly entering a Great Depression. In fact, I was taught that the term "recession" was invented to not scare folks in each depression. Also, numbers can be cooked and skewed so that we think we're not in depression when we are.

"They" won't have it any other way. The world is being forced into one currency, and of course with so many proud citizens of "once sovereign" nations there has to be a total destruction of current economies and things have to become so dire that we will accept a radically new way of conducting commerce.
